graham, final question, can chuck hagel become secretary of defense if he's the president's nominee? >> a lot of republicans asking hard questions, i don't think he's going to get many republican votes. i like chuck, but his positions, i didn't know all of them. are out of the mainstream and well to the left of the president. i think it will be a challenging nomination, the hearings will matter. >> if i were in the senate on the armed services committee, and he was nominated i would have some serious questions to ask him. >> i think senator engle will not be nominated or not be confirmed. the concede in the obama white house was these are republicans. on foreign policy, he's been way to the left of president obama. >>> former nebraska senator chuck hagel has been leaked not nominated leaked as a potential nominee for secretary of defense, and there was already a massive counter offensive against him. it does have more substance to it, than the attacks against susan rice. a fair amount of that substance consists of insinuations. the sides are forming, there's the chuck hagel defense
of murder victims will be presented in court. we hear from the defense on how it supports their case and who is see it. >> he's nailed the lid on the coffin. >> one family opens up about their experience and what this could mean for children who need loving homes. >> the made in china label is taking on a new meaning for this woman. >>> it's moving closer and will be here in the morning. inches of snow are just to the west. wyatt everhart has been monitoring the situation for days now. when do we expect the snowfall to hit because a lot of people are trying to plan their day. >> expect to wake up to the beginning of the this storm. snow showers just before dawn. most of us start with snow, and then the changeover and then it will move somewhat north. this is going to be throughout the day on saturday. it includes all of our northern count aies. hartford -- counties. hartford down through howard. not to say that areas across to kent island. you will get a few hours of snow in the morning, an inch or two of slush. temperatures now depends where you're looking at. we're below freezing in york.
off the cliff. >> so you want the sequestration cuts to go ahead, even on defense. i'm just getting breaking news that the president -- >> well, just remember, on defense, we are now spending substantially more, inflation adjusted, at the height of the vietnam war, when we were waging the cold war and we had 500,000 troops in the field. >> well, cnn has just confirmed, congressman, that the white house, the president will meet with the congressional leadership, both parties tomorrow at the white house. what do you think they need to put on the table and get done tomorrow? what do you want to hear them say? >> john, when did we stop teach civics in our schools? the president is not supposed to be part of the deliberative process. he heads an entirely separate branch of government with an altogether different purpose. i think we need to go back to the way the government was designed to operate, and that is the deliberative function, in the legislative branch, both the house and the senate, acting independently. and then resolving their differences through conference. that process work
on his agenda. one being the next secretary of defense. did you expect to see chuck hagel of all people so embattled from both sides? >> well, yes, sort of. yourn, you know that john mccain hates the guy. you know, he -- and he didn't create a lot of friends toward the end of his time and throughout most of his time as a senator. because he didn't really tow the party line on policy. he broke with republicans on the iraq war. and so he oftentimes would give democrats a way of saying what they were doing was bipartisan and then had the sheen of the veblt of a guy like hagel so it's this guy that's been a thorn in their side the whole time. now here he is he might be elevated to secretary of defense. and you could see that's going to bother the same types of people that seem to be bothered by every other person that's floated by obama. and that's mccain and graham and those fellas. >> but we've heard about this mccain not liking or hating chuck hagel. what's that about? what's their history? from one maverick to another. >> exactly. there's only so much room in the senate for mavericks. y
don't need a magazine with 100 rounds in it, that's notself defense, that's not hunting. and how we can back up -- yes, people have a right to protect their family, but you don't need all of this to protect your family. he did the opposite. he said let's put armed guards in the school, let's arm teachers. let's remember now, we have seen this year education budgets cut. we don't have money to give teachers raises. we had a teachers strike in chicago. we don't have money to do things that teachers need, but we'll find money to arm them, to train them, to buy them guns, ammunition. what are we saying? so we can arm teachers, but we can't give teachers money to give them the ability to be better educators? to me that's the wrong message to send. >> two sides are looking for meaningful contributions. the fact there was a gun buy-back program, the day after christmas, 1500 rifles and handguns were taken back by police in exchange for groceries and a cash back program there in los angeles. hugely successful. meanwhile, arizona's attorney general is proposes a voluntary programs where scho
a lot of that money will apparently come from it defense you your opinion? >> hopefully one thing they can iron out is replace the defense sequestration cuts with other limitations in spending in other areas. would be a good thing. one of the points we do need to make is we he blue through the $2.1 trillion worth of debt ceiling increase from last august in 17 months. that is an astonishing fact. once we get this tax issue behind us and hopefully in the next couple of days, then we need to start asking the president what s your plan, senator harry reid are you going pass a budget. i really do believe that the president and the democrats really have no intention and as a result have no plan to limit the rate of growth in government and no plan to save social security and medicare and we need to start putting political pressure on them to show the american people a plan. the house passed two budgets since i have been here. they both include some proposal to save medicare. the democrats have not done that and this is really where we start turning the messaging on them and start deman

matter that rises immediately to the floor is who is going to be the secretary of defense. the person whose name has been floated this week is chuck hagel. republicans are trying to stop his potential nomination too, even though chuck hagel himself is a former republican senator. they think he is not right wing enough. chuck hagel does not just have critics on the right, though. on the left there is rumbling that democratic presidents should stop putting republicans in the secretary of defense job like bill clinton did with bill cohen and president obama already did once with bob gates. calling it the bizarre tradition of sorts where democratic presidents suddenly act like republicans are right, that only they, republicans, can run our national security affairs. so there is general criticism from the left that democrats should stop bolstering the myth that republicans are stronger on defense because they're republicans, and therefore, only republicans should run defense even when a democrat is president. but there is also this one very specific criticism of chuck hagel individually. i

know the department of defense is plan og to downsize the military over the next few years as we also conclude our business in afghanistan. do you believe that the large amount of military personnel, d.o.d. contractors and other military support personnel will flood the job market and also increase the demand for goods?" no, trace, i don't think it will move the need middle. by the way, me don't move that fast. and if anything there could be a peace dividend if we ever got to that where we'd be able to cut the budget deficit a la what happened in the '90s. i don't think you should look at this issue in a way to be able to make money off it, though. it's really not a needle mover. as a matter of fact, it can be negative for a lot of the defense companies as we know. they've been under a cloud because of these cuts. here's one from danny in new york. hi, jim. i've heard you say when considering playing the down side of an equity that you would short the stock rather than buy a put. please elaborate on your reasoning for this. i favor the high risk of a short position. i'm so glad you se

of the defense establishment? >> oh, sure. hey, look, you guys are one of the good guys. you've started to run the debt clock as well as the time clock so the american people are starting to understand how fat that $16.3 trillion is just growing and growing and growing. the reality of it is if we don't deal with the explosion in entitlement costs, the baby boom is now retiring -- >> so what would you like to see done there specifically? apparently there's no major fix on entitlements coming as any deal this weekend actually. >> that's actually where my frustration is. we go through a month here of agony and every time i turn on my television the talk of the fiscal cliff but the thing that's actually driving us off the fiscal cliff is our debt and the explosion in the entitlements and yet that's the very thing we avoid dealing with. you ask about what we should do? look, those on the republican side on the house have voted for the ryan budget and others which actually gave a vision of how to put market forces into entitlement spending. if you don't like the idea, give us another suggestion, but
to succeed the defense secretary. you have former republican senator chuck hagel being talked about as a possible replacement as defense secretary, but i understand there's a lot of complications here and even controversy. can you tells what's happening in terms of background discussions of chuck hagel taking that job. >> you know, his name has been out there for a few weeks now as the sort of so-called front-runner. maybe it's a bit of an administration trial balloon at this point. we don't know. officially the white house hasn't made a decision on who at the present times to be the next secretary of defense, but they have let hagel's name be out there. that gave time for the opposition to reform. republicans and even democrats on capitol hill, his former allies coming out and being concerned about some of his positions that he took as a u.s. senator. alleging that he was not strong enough on countering iran, did not strovote for iran sanctions especially critical of his stance on israel. that he was perhaps not as supportive of israel as he should have been. chuck hagel is a prese

gun do for recreation? what does it do for hunting? what does it do for self-defense? >> it's a semiautomatic gun that looks like a military weapon. if you want to ban all semiautomatic guns, fine, let's talk about that. >> what's the purpose of an ar-15? >> it's like a hunting rifle that is cosmetically on the outside looks like a military weapon. >> how many bullets can it fire a second? how many bullets can it fire a second? answer my question. >> i'm going to answer your first question. >> you will not downgrade what these weapons do. how many -- answer the simple question. >> the point of the semiautomatic -- >> how many bullets does it fire in a second? used in the last three mass shootings. answer the question. are you going to answer or not? >> i'll answer your first question, and then i'll answer your second question. the reason you have a semiautomatic weapon is because, take the alternative. if i were to have a bolt-action rifle where i have to manually load it, and i have two criminals coming at me. i can fire one bullet and then it's going to take me a second to
defense attorney. the court called her, holly, irresistible attraction. >> well, let's just start with that, okay? >> how does this come into the decision? her attractiveness was irresistible? >> that's what this deny temperature claimed when he fired her. and he said the reason i fired her, my wife was getting jealous. and we didn't do anything. but i thought she was so attractive, i thought i might do something in the future if she continued to work with me. my wife thought the same thing so i fired her. your gut reaction as a human being, don. i saw that headline, and i was like, what, are you kidding? your gut reaction is that is ridiculous. read the decision of the iowa supreme court and basically what they're saying is, look, you weren't fired because you were a woman. you were fired because you're a good-looking woman. and that's a difference. that's not gender discrimination. that's like pretty discrimination. >> that's hating. >> right, right, exactly. >> all right. so let's look at her. everyone is like -- all right. so we've held the audience in expense long enough. whe
's say? >> well, as you probably know and have -- i'm completely against war. i believe in self-defense. i believe if you get hit, you hit back. but preemptive wars, i don't believe in them. i don't think they're necessary. i think wars are started to make money. and make money for the people who start a war over here and a war over there and sell bombs to both sides. >> when you look at what's happening in the middle east, it's been a crisis most of my lifetime, i can't remember. pretty much most of yours. do you see any hope there? do you see any chance of actual peace? the middle east? >> well, if you believe in the bible, where it says two things. it says is there there will always be wars and rumors of wars. and it also says that for 1,000 years somewhere down the future, we're going to have peace. so hopefully those thousand years are coming up on us. >> were you pleesed barack obama got re-elected? >> i'm glad he got re-elected. i think he has a lot of thing in his favor, the things that he has ran on. the women all believe in the things that he's talking about. the blacks and th

the fiscal cliff some democrats because they would finally get the defense cuts that they have been clamoring for and it would actually serve their purposes. i dismiss that. >> to be fair, we have even had some republicans who have said that that they want. members of the tea party don't want to have anything to do with -- they want us to go into default. they want us to face these problems. howard dean on the democratic side saying, look, if we don't do it, we have got this other plan and he talks about the fiscal cliff to what alisyn was just saying. listen. >> as you know, i believe the country would be better off if would get another revenueiff. to be serious about balancing the budget and get defense cuts which the congress will never vote for otherwise. we will get some human services cuts which i don't like but we are in a deep hole and everybody is going to have to put somethinged in something. the truth the belief that millionaires or people who make more than $250,000, you tax them more that's going to solve the deficit problem that's just not so. i think it would be better for the
hegel, feeling it from the left and the right. the defense built up and every time he takes a twitter, he seems to take out chuck hegel. it was a process by which the president gets leaked out. >> two problems that are besetting chuck hegel. he is not the official nominee. there is not an official campaign structure to defend chuck hegel. he is taking it from all sides and twisting it in the left and the right and all people taking shots at him. the second problem is he's a man without a party. you end up hearing republicans who are not too fond of the fact that he supported barack obama in the presidential contest. chuck schumer on "meet the press" was noncommittal. he is a man without a structure and a man without a party. that's a very difficult place to be. >> the current gym of washington politics. >> thank you so much for joining us. appreciate it. the cliff gets closer and compromise gets further away. next, we are gaming out the option with two guys who are living and breathing this fight with me and the halls of congress. what this stalemate means for the rest of the to do li

the recessca appointments are invalid.igh here to weigh in, legal analyst and, criminal defense attorney. i want to go to you first. at the end of the day this whole thing is just an argument about> was the senate in session or was it not? >> the president may have skirted the law little bit like sidelining it, but did they cross over the line? no. does this happen all the time?li yes. itss does. t >>he the skirted the law like im wearing a skirt. gerri: that would be known. >> let's take a step back and design for this was to do. the founding fathers said look, if you have to make a temporaryr appointment, the senate confirm it, we will not drag the senate back in, so mr. president do what you have to do, goes for the convenience of the senateth not to screw the senate which is what the president is doing.we gerri: this is a family show. was a president trying to get around the senate? do something a sene did not like? >> he may have skirted, but he did not go over the line. so legally it is proper. you can't argue with that. >> they killed it, he threw it out the window. because first of
